What are Razor Bumps?

Razor bumps are a type of skin irritation specifically caused by shaving. Known scientifically as pseudofolliculitis barbae, razor bumps form from hair follicles that get trapped under layers of skin. The skin condition results in inflammation in the form of raised, red bumps on the skin. While men are more prone to suffering from razor bumps, women also see them appear on their skin. Fortunately, razor bumps can be prevented with proper shaving methods such as using a razor with sharp blades and keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated while shaving.

Razor Bumps in Men

Razor bumps in men typically appear on the face. Improper shaving methods or the wrong type of razor can significantly impact the results of your shave and ultimately, your skin. Some men are even required to shave regularly in order to satisfy work protocols which can be problematic for men with sensitive skin types. Learn more below.

Razor Bumps in Women

Razor bumps in women differ from their male counterparts in a variety of ways. Women often shave very different parts of the body, such as their legs and underarms, all of which are susceptible to painful razor bumps. Frequent shaving may play a factor in skin irritation, but improper shaving techniques are the biggest culprit. Learn more below.

Unlike other companies that do shaving waivers online, patients who come to Razorbumps.com physically see or talk to a physician every single time. Other companies only speak to you via chat, thus you never actually get to meet with a physician. At Razorbumps.com, we conduct full video visits for shaving waivers.

Please do not post information here respecting your medical history, your symptoms, any diagnosis you may have been given, the names of any medications you may be taking, or any other specific information about your health or healthcare. Please limit your posting to such matters as days and times you’d like to be seen or preferences, if any, for a provider. Our shaving waiver policy is as follows:

  1. No waiver is issued without a video/audio visit with one of our licensed doctors.
  2. A $49.99 administration fee is required for all waivers. Razor Bumps Inc spends time and money marketing this website razorbumps.com and this fee allows us to cover our costs.
  3. Currently, Razor Bumps Inc uses two physician groups/practices to assist men in getting a shaving waiver
    • One group is a telehealth company, My Virtual Physician (where shaving waivers are done by general primary care doctors)
    • The other group is a Dermatology practice based in New Jersey where the lead Dermatologist is licensed in multiple states.
    • The cost to cover the doctor consult depends on which of the two practices you get your waiver from.
      • If you get your waiver from My Virtual Physician, the doctor fee is $24.99 if you are cash pay.
      • If you have insurance your co-pay will depend on your specific plan.
      • Due to federal laws My Virtual Physician cannot unilaterally waive co-pays. If they are in network with your insurance they will attempt to bill the insurance plan for the doctor's time to conduct the video visit.
      • If you get your waiver from the Dermatology practice we refer to, the doctor fee is $150.00.
        1. This practice will no longer take insurance starting June 1. 2023.
        2. However, you can submit your receipt to your insurance plan and potentially get reimbursed. The practice will guide you as to how to do this.
  1. Please note that although the two doctor groups we use will strive to get you your waiver within 24hrs, it may take up to 3 business days to receive the waiver.
  2. Privacy is very important to us. We never share any of your information with anyone, nor do we ever sell it. You can be secure knowing we value and endeavor always to safeguard your data and online presence. For more details, please see our Privacy Policy.

*Kindly note that if your insurance rejects the claim for your physician's visit, you may receive a bill. In such event, please don't hesitate to contact our office for assistance with adjustments.
